No owners manual for a 97 Chevy cavalier- what does check engine - EST off light mean?

Sources of owners manual are Dealer, Salvage Yard, Ebay, and many on-line sites. Check Engine light will come on when the computer has detected a fault in the emissions system. Scanning the computer will list a fault code that will help to narrow down the problem. EST is, Electronic Spark Timing. I have a 97' Chevy Cavalier, and my check engine light comes on every once and a while. When it does come on the ETS OFF light also comes on...did you mean the ETS OFF light? or the EST OFF light? ETS OFF means the Enhanced Traction System. I took my car to Autozone and had them read the computer and it had something to do with a misfiring sparkplug, I replaced the sparkplugs and now everything is fine.

ETS is connected to your ABS. ETS is a traction control and is linked to your ABS so to get your ETS light off you'll probably have to fix your ABS to get the light off. On mine, fixing a broken wire on my ABS plug which runs into the hub fixed my problem.

If this light is lit up it means that your traction control has been turned off. There may be a number of situations where this is normal, check your owners manual for details. Other times you will see this light in combination with the ABS light. They both use the braking system and if there is a problem with the anti-lock braking system they will both shut off.

This is Electronic Traction Control. Yours, it appears is turned off. If you have an owner's manual, it will provide the information you want. If not, get one. In the mean time look closely, and I am sure you will find the on/off switch on the dash or near the shifter.

Why would the 'check engine' light and 'ETS off' light turn on at the same time on a '97 Olds Achieva when the ETS system is on?

When there is a failure that sets the check engine light, the vehicle responds by going into a limp mode. This means traction control and ETS are automatically turned off for safety and to prevent further problems with the vehicle.

What would cause a Chevy Cavalier ETS check engine light to come on and the vehicle to run bad?

You need to have the computer scanned to find the reason why the engine light is on. Some large auto parts stores do this for free Normally the ETS check engine light has nothing to do with the engine running bad. The ETS is part of the traction system in the car. Depending on the age of the vehicle, you might want to disconnect the negative battery cable on the vehicle for a few minutes, and then hook back up. In older vehicles, it will reset the computer and the light should go off. It does this in a 1996 model. Worth a try.. ETS stands for Enhanced Traction System, and has nothing to do with emissions or cooling. But the computer will almost always de-activate the ETS when a problem is detected, and thus turn on the light. This is normal on the Cavalier. The Check Engine light does mean the emissions system has a problem. Have the computer scanned for the codes by someone who is able to interpret the codes and not just throw parts at the problem. This takes skill and knowledge, so take it to a professional, and don't waste money guessing.
